Seven years ago, a pregnant Tessa Earldon had been passionately in love with her newlywed husband. But she was told he was dead and was quickly pushed into an ill-fated marriage—and lost her child shortly thereafter. Now divorced and on the run from her ex, when she hears footsteps one dark night, she assumes they belong to her husband. And she's right. But she's wrong about which husband is pursuing her….
Six years ago, David Oliveri—aka Jirrah McLaren—was about to claim his bride when her brother intercepted him, threw him in jail…and convinced Tessa that he was dead and to marry another. Now Jirrah is a free man, and he's back to get what's his—his wife. His child. And revenge. And not necessarily in that order.
